Eradication of Anoplophora glabripennis in St Georgen bei Obernberg, Austria
The NPPO of Austria recently informed the EPPO Secretariat that the isolated outbreak of Anoplophora glabripennis (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae – EPPO A1 List) found in 2012 in Geinberg near St Georgen bei Obernberg, Oberösterreich (EPPO RS 2013/163) has been successfully eradicated. In this demarcated area, intensive surveys have been carried out since September 2012 and no new infestations or living specimens have been found. The NPPO noted that as the infestation in Braunau-am-Inn was successfully eradicated in 2012 (EPPO RS 2013/163), only one demarcated area located in Gallspach (outbreak detected in November 2013) remains under eradication in Austria.
